Observations in the EAP classroom

Observations are central to both BALEAP Accreditation Schemes for courses (BAS) and individuals (TEAP) because they enable assessors to observe and teachers to demonstrate practical competence in the EAP classroom against a set of agreed criteria. The aim of this pre-conference event is to explore the observation processes for both BAS and TEAP. This PCE is aimed at:

  • managers considering applying for BALEAP Accreditation of their courses
  • teachers currently participating or planning to participate in the TEAP Scheme
  • TEAP mentors assessing Associate Fellow portfolios within their institutions and those on the Senior Fellow pathway who hope in future to be carrying out TEAP observations and assessing portfolios.

We will discuss the different types of observations which are required for evaluating teaching competence on courses and for individuals, and the criteria applied to these. We will watch short extracts from recorded observations and discuss how they relate to the criteria. We will then separate into two groups, depending on the focus of interest, to discuss either:

  • how the design of EAP courses supports and develops teachers
  • how a TEAP observation can become the focus of a range of cohesive portfolio evidence.

It is hoped that you will end the morning feeling more confident about the role of observation in the accreditation process and how to benefit from an observation, whether as observer or observee.

Please note that there will be some overlap with the BAS event held in Edinburgh in May 2016.
